Andrew Freedman is the first real "Cannabis Sommelier" his focus on pairing cannabis, beer, cocktail, wine and gastronomy are completely unique and original.

Andrew worked in the cannabis trade for over a decade. Noticing that there was a lack of scientific language for describing cannabis he became very interested in blind tasting wine. 

His expertise in growing and extracting cannabis led to a passion in viticulture and oenology.  He soon found himself living on a vineyard working as a cellar hand at a estate winery. While honing his palate he became a WSET 3 and one of few Canadian Wine Scholars.

Andrews passion for cannabis and wine led him to begin teaching what he had learned and created "The Cannabis Sommelier" YouTube channel which currently features new content constantly. 

Andrew is the host and producer of the “Beers With Buds” podcast which charted at #49 on the Canadian food podcast rankings. You can also find Andrew writing for various international publications about cannabis, wine and dining.
